UVA Coursera Course- Patrick Henry: Forgotten Founder   NEW!

Patrick Henry was enormously popular during the American Revolution. Yet today, Patrick Henry is ill-remembered, most Americans might recall at best perhaps a snippet from his famous speech: "give me liberty or give me death." Patrick Henry, who helped to ignite a revolution, deserves better. This course will explore how Patrick Henry overcame challenges to reach the pinnacle of Virginia politics and unite Americans behind a challenge to Britain-the 18th century's super-power; why he opposed the U.S. Constitution; and why he then came out of retirement to defend the people's Constitution against the attacks of Jefferson and Madison.
